When the Gibbs gang seek to serve a warrant, they find cocaine, cash, and the dead body of the subject person; a dog bites McGee, who shoots (but does not kill) the dog. The victim was a Navy petty officer, based at the Naval Air Station, Patuxent (Pax) River, Maryland, near Lexington Park, and he was the handler of a drug-sniffing dog. It appears that the dog killed his handler. Against official reluctance and opposition, the team continues to investigate. Abby goes to unusual lengths to disprove the guilt of a party in custody. Abby and Jethro go to Pax River, where Jethro finds a buried canine skeleton. The bunch put all the pieces together and nab the person responsible, and Abby finds a new home for Jethro.

inconsistent Abby
3 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

In the episode Corporal Punishment, Abby is ready to hang Damon Werth for attacking Tony, Ziva and Tim but she gets more angry at Tim for shooting a dog that was attacking him. Most times Abby has empathy for everyone but in the 4th and 5th seasons she bounces all over the place between one extreme to another. It's like the writers know nothing about the characters they are writing for.
